AEW gave Britt Baker and Thunder Rosa a terrific platform to have a feud and they took full advantage of that. They did not go for a hair vs hair match, and that was apparently never on the table. That didn’t stop the rumor mill from churning.
Baker sold a ton of t-shirts with her bloody face on them thanks to her unsanctioned match with Thunder Rosa. A new line of action figures features that bloody grin as well. Although a bald Britt Baker action figure would sell like hotcakes, it was never on the table.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Tony Khan said that he would never consider a Baker vs Rosa hair vs hair match for a second. It’s unclear who got that rumor going, but TK shut it down.
Regarding the hair vs hair idea for a Britt Baker vs. Thunder Rosa blow-off match, Tony Khan said he would never consider doing this even for a fraction of a second
Baker is the AEW Women’s Champion now, and she will defend her title against Ruby Soho at AEW Grand Slam on September 22nd. Thunder Rosa signed with AEW full time since her feud with Baker after getting out of her NWA contract.
We’ll have to see if Britt Baker and Thunder Rosa have any more epic encounters. The two ended things with a banger of an unsanctioned match. Perhaps one day they will meet again, but nobody’s hair will be on the line.
